Research Associate Professor
Dr. Ogden manages the departmentís undergraduate experimental laboratories, mentors capstone engineering design teams and owns a technology development company focused on green propellants and renewable fuels. Oversaw the installation of a closed-loop chilled water recirculation system in the Undergraduate Unit Operations Laboratory funded through the UA Green Fund and alumni donations. The ultimate goal of the project was to reduce the labís overall water consumption by approximately 200,000 gallons per year and power consumption by over 600 kWh/year. These energy and resource savings will reduce the collegeís environmental footprint. In addition, this project provided unique opportunities for two undergraduate chemical engineers to install and test a full-scale system, thereby strengthening their engineering, design and communication skills.
